Why work at Western Motors Group

Western Motors is a family business, founded by Jim McCormack in 1964 and now managed by his sons James & Simon McCormack. With multi-franchise dealerships in both the West and the East of the country we are continually growing both our business and our teams.

We understand that our company is driven by our people and it’s important to complement the family’s knowledge with the fresh strategic perspectives of other qualified personnel and to this end we have been very successful in building a strong Western Motors team, many of whom have been with us for years and are equally committed to the future of the business. Our dynamic management team deliver strong performance management and cover all areas of the business. Continued investment and development of our talent management is a key focus for us in the coming years, ensuring prudent investments in strategy, planning, and evaluation as well as a diverse and highly skilled staff.

We’re heading into an era that demands a major rethink of what our role as a dealership will look like and changing consumer expectations and emerging digital technologies are reshaping what’s possible.

Smart technology and smart cars are leading the way and dealers have an important customer-facing role in handling vehicle sales, servicing, and support. Now more than ever, we need to keep up with consumer preferences, emerging technologies, and the new normal of our industry.  Electric mobility forms a massive part of this and we need to ensure we have the teams, infrastructure and training programmes in place.
